Azura Lodge

Bazaruto Marine National Park
Benguerra Island , Mozambique http://azura-retreats.com/benguerra/
27-767-050599

Azura pulls out all the stops: private plunge pools, a chef imported from the U.K.’s Michelin-starred Fat Duck. But what makes it really special is the barefoot vibe: unlike many of its ilk, the resort is thoroughly authentic. The 14-villa hideaway was handmade from tree felled by past cyclones; rooms are outfitted with artisanal furnishings (the wooden beds were carved by local craftsmen); and gracious islanders make up the butler staff.
